3 out of 5 stars 2 of 10 this day

According to Tim's old guide this one is rated 5.8, but we soon discovered that Lost Crag seems to be at least a little sandbagged (or we completely suck, which is also probably true). Nice, slightly lichen covered rock with side-pulls, pockets and laybacks leads up through overhanging rock to a good crack and the finish. Crux is placing good enough gear in the most overhanging section to keep you off the ledge. Even with a couple trips up and down (to rest) to fiddle with gear, still needed a hang just out of reach of the easier holds to complete. Good for getting a pump going, too bad it was on second climb of day. Recovered with some easier climbs after.
